During a meeting on stable energy supplies, the South Korean president described the nuclear sector as a main source of electricity in the next 60 years.

For the next 60 years, as long as nuclear power plants continue to operate, they should be fully used as a main source of electricity, Moon expressed.

The president said the South Korean Government’s energy transition policy is to gradually suspend the construction of new nuclear power plants and ban the life extension of older facilities until 2084.

The government plans to reduce nuclear power to account for 23.9 percent of the country’s total generation by 2030, down from 30 percent last year.

It aims to increase the share of renewable sources to 20 percent from 6.6 percent over the same period.
